The incidence of dengue has grown dramatically around the world in recent decades. The disease is now endemic in more than 100 countries. The Americas, South-East Asia and Western Pacific regions are the most seriously affected, with Asia representing approximately 70% of the global burden of disease. However, dengue is also spreading to non-endemic regions such as Europe, with the threat of explosive outbreaks.
